lol "His/her" verm layer is like 1/4 inch thick...from what i could tell it wasnt packed down or anything seemed moist enough but not wet you know......im no "pro" but ive experimented a tiny bit in the past and i cant see any reason why its not colonizing....my freind didnt sterilize the casing layers either.....and im not real sure if that even has anything to do with colonization.....i saw no contamination either so i dont...any help would be much appreciated............
thanks

could be the moisture content in your casing, give the casing a smell. could be contams, also, I highly reccommend sterilizing verm, i know a lot of people don't have still been successful, but the quality and grades of verm vary so much from brand to brand, its also a pain in the ass when you find out that it was the verm that contaminated the casing and that taking a couple minutes to sterilize it would have made it work. Better safe than sorry.

i've had this happen. after 9 days, if it's not colonising, i'm afraid you probably have a contam you can't see.
maybe wet spot?

sorry, man. hope you have some more substrate? :confused:

yea man the casing smells like a fresh cake....after you turn the verm layers over a lil bit.....still saw no contamination but we'll see....i think they are gonna wait a couple more days and if nada happens they are gonna inspect it assuming it is a contam......ah welll...thanks for the help
